Ireland Under-21 international Shane Duffy is also set to deputise in central defence once again, with Sylvain Distin and Phil Jagielka both out injured. Leon Osman is out due to a knee problem.
Fulham are likely to retain most of the side that hammered in-form Newcastle United 5-2 at the weekend, but Moussa Dembele and Dickson Etuhu could return from respective injuries, with Steve Sidwell also facing a race to be fit.
Mark Schwarzer is still a week or two away from returning to action, while Zdenek Grygera remains the only long-term absentee for Martin Jol.
